Just wondering if you were able to "feel" to push if you had an epidural. I was in agony for 45 minutes leading up to the doctor finally allowing me to push. The pressure was intense! Is this normal? Is this a sign of a really good epidural or a poor one? I know of other friends who could not feel to push. I could feel everything and could also feel his body parts, etc. I really valued it because I think it helped me to push better.
